1998 Nissan Pathfinder SE 4dr SUV 4WD


Bought used in 2001 with 41,600 miles on it-have 144000+ on it now without a squeak or rattle. It's a workhorse, but also a funhorse! A rock solid, reliable multitasker that hauls people, boats, kayaks and auction treasures. An enjoyable drive except for the lack of power and a wider-than-expected turning radius. Interior fit and finish is solid. Significant blind spots, though, and deafening wind noise when the moon roof is open - can't hear the radio on the highway! Seat belts drive me nuts - don't retract properly, even after several visits to the dealer. Took off running board tubes - rusted out on the driver side. Small stuff - will keep until it falls apart.

Best Features

Reliability, handling, sound system, styling, cargo room, 4WD performance in snow, driver comfort.

Worst Features

Snappier seat belt retractors, moon roof wind deflector, more power, better mileage, interior opener for rear door, better placement of cruise control switch, bigger cup holders.
